Philips 328M6

Review by Playwares

Curved, matte, semi-wide gamut 2560x1440 144hz VA panel with height adjustable stand, AMD Free-Sync (48-144hz), 2x Displayport, HDMI 1.4, HDMI 2.0, VGA and 3.5mm Audio In & Out.  The 328M6 is very accurate, has high contrast for a VA panel (4,000:1 versus 2,300-3,000:1 for most VA monitors), can display an HDR signal (not properly since it lacks all of the features required for true HDR), and has fast pixel response times and negligible input lag.  While not mentioned in Playwares review, expect typical VA smearing of black, browns and greys due to VA panels slower pixel response times. The Response Time setting needs to be switched from the preset Off setting to Faster for the best performance and fastest pixel response times without overshoot ghosting.


Philips 325M7

Review by Playwares

Curved, matte, semi-wide gamut (122% sRGB or 22% over-saturation of non-HDR content) 2560x1440 144hz VA panel with height adjustable stand, AMD Free-Sync (48-144hz), back-light strobing (MPRT), Displayport, HDMI 1.4, VGA and 3.5mm Audio Out.  The 325M7 is very accurate once set to the Gamer 2 mode, has above average contrast for a curved VA panel (3,000:1 versus 1800-2800:1), and has fast pixel response times and negligible input lag.  While not mentioned in the Playwares review, expect typical VA smearing of black, browns and greys due to VA panels slower pixel response times. The Response Time setting needs to be switched from the preset Off setting to Faster for the best performance and fastest pixel response times (Faster Smart Response or overdrive setting) without overshoot ghosting.

Philips 325M8

Review by Playwares

Curved, matte, semi-wide gamut (123% sRGB mode or 25% over-saturation in the Gamer 2 mode for non-HDR content) 2560x1440 144hz VA panel with height adjustable stand, AMD Free-Sync (48-144hz), back-light strobing (MPRT), Displayport, 2x HDMI and 3.5mm Audio Out.  The 325M8 is very accurate when set to the Gamer 2 or sRGB mode which also provide remarkably high 6800:1 contrast, and very accurate colors, but with around 25% over-saturation of SDR (HDTV/REC 709 & sRGB) since the 325M8 uses a semi-wide gamut panel.  The Philips has negligible input lag (4-5ms measured by Playwares with the SMT Tool), but below average pixel response times at 144hz even when the best (Fast) Smart Response overdrive setting is used.
